Mixed Media Artist

Laced Up (Corset 2019)

This is a 9″x12″ mixed media/ encaustic painting. The sides are 1.5″ deep and are turquoise but could be red if you prefer. This paintings is available in my Etsy shop order directly from me Maria@mariapacewynters.com

Haven’t done a corset for awhile but Chris went to a Frida exhibit in NY the other day and saw a display of her decorated body casts. It made me think of Imogen and her collection of braces that she had to wear for her scoliosis treatment. These braces inspired the corset paintings I did several years back. I’m Always trying to romanticize things, to make something ugly more beautiful. I’m actually quite morbid and dark individual and I think I try to counter that by painting beauty and trying to capture whimsy. It’s that ying yang thang don’t you know
